Worst Things that Happened in 2017

2017 is a new year, and there have already been bad things going on so quickly.
So many bad things.

So I decided to make this list for you all.

There's so much more to go on as time goes by.

The Top Ten

1 Las Vegas Strip Shooting

So many people died without expecting a thing, if someone lived near the cost then expect a hurricane but if you go to a country festival, you won't expect to be shot...it's tragic and shouldn't have happened

We almost got involved in this shooting! Good thing we left a day before it happened because if we were still there (Doesn't matter if we were out or staying at the hotel) our entire vacation would have been completely destroyed. A great family vacation would have become a horrible family vacation death nightmare!

60 people shot and killed at a casino concert, 300 others were injured. Biggest massacre in history of America!

Actually, 9/11was the biggest massacre in American history, but it was a series of plane attacks, this is the biggest shooting massacre in American history. - Gregory

My mom said she would've attend if she was still in Las Vegas. Luckily she moved out as we encouraged her before the shooting. Worst shooting by a lone gunman in US history.

2 Fort Lauderdale Airport Shooting

Well, it appears the terrorists really want something to do with us based on all the incidents that happened this year

An oil tank incident in Pakistan killed hundreds of people, which should make that number one on the list and not this.

Um Manchester and Pakistan were worse. this list is messed up, terror is bad, but step up and realize how many innocent lives taken in those special incidents, and learn the sympathy we were in.

Donald J. Trump being sworn in as president of United States should be number one on this list!

3 Death of Chester Bennington

He was a great singer, a talented artist, an icon of Linkin Park as well as Rock Music, and then he passed away. July 20 will be remembered as one of the darkest days not just for Linkin Park, but for Rock Music as well. RIP

Suicide is the worst way to die, like I said about that.

I have held Linkin Park close to my heart since I was 12. While I thought One More Light was by far their worst album, I still thought it was pretty good, and I look back on the lyrics and get an insight into what Chester was thinking during this time. While he only co-wrote two songs, he still sold me on the ones he didn't write, so I still believed him that he was going through a dark time. This was especially saddening as I had tickets to see them in concert just two weeks after he died.

I'm a huge fan of Linkin Park. But Chester's death being 3rd on this list... This is just horrible! There are shootings! Plane crashes! People die! Many people! Innocent people! And you choose ONE guy who decided to kill himself? This is horrible!

4 Kyrgyzstan Plane Crash

Why is this still number one? We had worse moments, such as the January Baghdad bombings and the February Pakistan suicide bombing, that killed 100 PEOPLE!

32 people Killed in a plane crash.

Very horrible accident, over 30 people died in it. RIP

Turkish Airlines Flight 6491 was the flight name. Very sad incident.

5 Cleveland Easter Shooting

How horrible. That man was really evil.

That was a sad day.

I don't know

Why poor kids theyll not be wating anymore choc

6 U.S. Soldier Killed by ISIS in Afghanistan

America is doomed by ISIS

Let's hope Trump can end Isis and Al-Qaeda, then he won't be a bad president after all.

Who knows what they will do next

I'm NOT from America and I'm NOT American, but NO! Why did ISIS have to kill those beloved American heroes?! Why?! ISIS IS EVIL! 😢😭😠

7 New Orleans Tornado Outbreak

That was crazy

2016: Bad year in General
2017: Bad year in weather

8 Stephen Hillenburg Diagnosed with ALS

Worst thing when this happened and when he died a year later witch was sad

This is probably the worst thing that ever happened this year.
SpongeBob was my childhood and always will be.

SpongeBob is love, SpongeBob is life, WHO'S WITH ME!

Dammit ALS!

9 Hurricane Irma

It's only just started, and will only continue, so just wait.

This was very, very bad.

Awful day for Florida and Cuba. Our hearts go on with everybody involved.

My grandmother used to live in Key West and the hurricane was so close to Key West! Very scary!

10 Texas Church Shooting

I live in Texas and visited that church before. I heard there were so many young kids and it was the worst shooting in Texas history.

That's rats mate

This should be higher than Kim Kardashian getting pregnant.. disappointed

Shootings, shootings, shootings...sigh...

The Contenders

11 Bombing at Ariana Grande Concert in Manchester UK

Poor Ariana Grande and poor people that died. I am so sad that this happened. All those innocent kids who were involved, I hope they're all okay.
P.S. Ariana is amazing, considerate and kind, she literally went out her way and had pity for all those suffering and dying and went off doing a One Love Manchester Concert. She is something else, wow. She's a strong, brave woman with a good heart and I love how she was so kind enough to visit all these victims in the hospital. I love you Ariana Grande, you're a SAINT! God bless you and I hope all is well

This is the closest time of 2017 that any pop star got involved in an incident and worst of all, 12 of the 23 victims are young children (Only under 16 years old) which would mean the 11 others are the adults. The attacker also died as well. 59 others got injured and Ariana was forced to cancel the tour. But to the haters, this is serious, no wishing of this event as a blessing to a singer you hate, that is just straight wrong.

All those beautiful children... and everyone affected by this act of cowardice. My heart feels so sad for everyone involved. But Manchester is a city of strong individuals who stick together through everything. They are like one big supportive family. To see them all pulling together, helping each other through this awful time is so touching. If ever there was such a thing as the North / South divide, it's just dissolved.

She is nothing compared to Liam Gallagher. He was the only good music artist to perform at One Love Manchester.

12 Donald Trump Becomes President

Oh for pete's sake.

Oh please! GET OVER Losing the damn election already. Is that really worse than innocent people dying?

I already know that. But Hillary Clinton supporters need to get over it already - Randomator

He does suck, but we would of been in trouble if Hillary won

Definitely one of the worse things to happen worldwide.

13 Egypt Mosque Attack

Isis needs to stop

More than 230 killed, what a bad year we've had. -Myers1321

305 people were killed, this is just another example of the dark side of humanity.

305 dead, 109 injured. This is the worst year ever.

14 Jerusalem Truck Attack

Terrorists. Doing it in a RELIGIOUS CITY!? makes it worse.

Very happy.

very sad

It was like Nice, France, a terrorist rammed people with a truck.
Though Nice had 85 people killed, while only 5 were killed in this, but still, terror is Horrible.

15 Orlando Police Shooting

I am probably never going to Orlando again!

Why is this even on the list!?

We are just hoping for peace to restore, and this is just nothing like it.
They were heroes, shot to death, and remember what happened before in 2016 with the nightclub in Orlando.
And the police shooting in Dallas?

16 Seattle Amtrak Train Derailment

My feelings go out to the victims and their families, and everyone who was on that train.

17 Death of Angry Grandpa

At least he can now see his parents again!

The worst thing that happened in 2017


so sad :-(

18 2017 San Bernardino Shooting

I don't remember this happening!

19 Cincinnati Ohio Shooting


20 Akhnoor Attack

That the dumb protest is going on boo boo

We've lost 3 civilians in the attack cause some guy did this.

21 British Columbia Wildfires
22 Bella Thorne Dating Sam Pepper

She was a good actress when on The Suite Life on Deck, then she went downhill when she was on Shake It Up.
And things just got downright ugly when she started dating Sam Pepper.
The Worst YouTuber of all time.
He rapes people and pretended to kill someone, as pranks.
Just Horrible.
I can't believe someone would do that.

23 Death of Adam West

R.I.P adam west, I heard his voice watching the old batman show once, and in lego batman 3 when I had to find adam wests in levels and areas and the bonus level of the old batman show

The actor of Batman, Marvel lost the flag man.
Dead at 88, from leukemia disease.

24 Death of Craig Butz

He was an awesome hockey player, and was later the principal of my old high school.

25 Death of Gene Cernan

He was the last person on the Moon, and the one who took the photo of Earth in Apollo 17, the most famous photo of all time.

We'll Never forget him or his accomplishments.

And he was 82, same age Neil Armstrong died at.
